How to Use Storytelling as a Leadership Tool - Forbes

How to Use Storytelling as a Leadership Tool - Forbes | Curating Mode ! | Scoop.it
Paul Smith I recently spoke to Paul Smith, who is a consumer research executive, keynote speaker, corporate trainer, and author of Lead with a Story: A Guide to Crafting Business Narratives that Captivate, Convince, and Inspire (AMACOM Books, August,...

 

I've been following Dan Schawbel for years and was delighted to find that he recently interviewed colleague Paul Smith at Proctor and Gamble about his new book on storytelling and leadership titled Lead With A Story.

 

This interview with Paul that Dan conducted is chock full of good information about the need for leaders to develop storytelling as a core competence. And tips on how companies can make storytelling part of their leadership practices.

 

What I love about Paul's book is his identification of 21 common leadership challenges where storytelling can help. He based his conclusions on his interviews with 75+ CEOs and executives at companies around the world.

 

If you want to know more about storytelling and leadership, read this article and then get the book (I have no affiliation with Paul or his publisher).

 

You will have more tools at your disposal than when you started!

Michel CEZON's curator insight, March 2, 2014 12:28 PM

Charisma is a collection of traits and behaviors that help you appeal to other people. Charismatic people are often successful, and people are naturally drawn to them. They retain the best talent in their teams, and people listen to their ideas.

Because charisma is a collection of behaviors, you can learn it. Work on developing empathy, self-confidence, and assertiveness. Be aware of what your body language is saying, and do your best to give people a genuine smile when you're around them.

Also, make sure that you use your charisma the right way: don't use it to influence someone to do something that is against his or her own best interests.
